Koa is pretty, but the sound is not for everyone and it's rather hit and miss.

Wow. Does MF have big discounts on synthesizers and MIDI controllers?

Good bang for the buck, but the limiting factor isn't the wood type, it's the fact that it's laminate instead of solid. You can have triple A grade brazilian rosewood, but if it's laminate, its sound characteristic will always be dwarfed compared to any decent solid wood guitar.

This is mostly true. However, one of the main factors of the sound is the Koa top which is much different than the typical spruce top. Koa can sound thin at times and it's not for everyone.

damn this deal got me hard. I'm in the market for a new acoustic, my last one is from a pawn shop. Old 1980's Fender. I'm trying to upgrade but I don't know anything about this brand or sound. I've never played a Koa guitar before.

I can only speak for my personal ear. I love the sound of koa and would prefer it over spruce and mahogany on a Taylor guitar any day. Of course this is a breedlove and I don't have experience with there koa guitars. Someday I would like to own a koa guitar but I would definitely want to play it first before spending the money. I feel it's worth it to find a breedlove dealer and give it a try before the purchase. I am not making a statement about the manufacturer but of the tone wood used in it's build.

I can't speak to the Koa but I have a Breedlove Atlas acoustic and it has served me well. These are high end guitars, a respected brand and a great deal. Even when they manufacture outside of the US everything is brought back to their US factory for a thorough inspection. Check out their website you will see the kind of amazing guitars they produce.

It's cool they do re-inspect here in the USA. I do feel that buying a product made in the USA is not only about quality but support for the country.

Can't speak for the Koa but I have a Breedlove and it's fantastic. I started on an Alvarez to learn (my first big purchase at the ripe age of 16). I picked up the breed love about 6 yrs after and I dig it.

I prefer the sound over some of the middle of the road Martin's and Taylor's I've picked up. Almost all the hobby guitarist I interact with are always pleasantly surprised by the sound quality of my guitar and often ask what brand it is (bc they don't recognize the emblem).

Like I said, I can vouch for the brand with confidence, BUT I firmly believe you should hear the instrument before purchase. Some of it even just comes down to preference so it's best if you can hear it for yourself before you make the investment.

I own a Breedlove and it sounds better than guitars that cost twice as much. I normally wouldn't buy an acoustic guitar online without hearing it first, but this is an incredible deal.
